A gentle day

Today has been a warm day of mist and soft rain. At times the mist became a white fog at the edges of the road. A favourite sort of summer weather and rare.

I spent most of the day reading. I have read four of  the books I collected together at the end of January. I'm now reading The Plains and to my surprise this time I love it, I'm unable to put it down.
Sometimes this happens, I resist a book for a long time and then I pick it up and I sink into it, overcome. I am finally ready to read it.

It's taken me all month to read Great Expectations.
I can't remember what it was that got me to pick it up again.
I've tried reading Dickens many times but I just can't get into him.
But this time I persevered.
I've finished it but I still don't know what I think!

What a pity, as I have it in a pile somewhere to read - perhaps it will stay there a bit longer!
I really loved the old black & white film though - can't even remember who was in it, I saw it a LONG time ago.
